All Bostons are great, right? And they all deserve a home that fits them perfectly. Sometimes, though, they are works in progress, or diamonds in the rough. They need that special person who can be their forever companion.
That’s the way it is with the NEBTR Bostons featured on this page. Could you be the forever family that each one is looking for?
If you are active, into agility and/or looking for an active dog for your active lifestyle; you need to meet Hershey! He is a 4 yo neutered 35lb. Boston Terrier mix who was reluctantly surrendered to rescue by a loving family due to severe allergies with one of the children. Because of a biting incident during a vet visit, he was moved to our trainer where he is also learning to control his impulses and is gaining some much needed leash manners.
Hershey is a fun loving, high energy boy who seems to get along well with other dogs that can hold their own. He loves to play outside and chase balls. Because he has quite a high prey drive, he can easily become overstimulated so care should be taken when engaging him in play; and it is clear to see that in this state he could nip and jump. For this reason we do not recommend a home with children. His adopters would be confident people with experience or willing to learn. He’s a good boy in the crate and loves food and is very affectionate. Hershey will make a great companion for someone who is willing to continue to work with him.
Hershey is also an intelligent, inquisitive working dog or agility dog in a Boston terrier mix; his owner must be able to manage and orchestrate his play, from beginning to end.( the person needs to be able to understand when the dog gets to excited how to control that behavior). Someone who has had a working dog ( Border Collie or similar) and understands working dog behavior would be the best fit. Seriously, this is an awesome dog, extremely good looking and just needs the right owner. He really needs his forever home.
A fenced in yard is important for this boy who loves to play. If you are looking for a great dog, are willing to put in the time and energy to him, you will have a great companion.Since he is currently with our trainer, several visits will need to be scheduled prior to adoption – consideration to location is important.
Hershey is currently being fostered in Clinton, CT and his adoption fee will be $500.00.
Archie is 5 years old, large and handsome. He was adopted by a very elderly couple who readopted him out; his new owners dropped Archie off at the Atlantic County shelter in NJ where he was quarantined in solitary confinement for 10 days due to biting.
Archie was scheduled to be euthanized when his 10 days were up. NEBTR picked him up before that occurred. He has been with our trainer for several months and for the right person, he is available for adoption.
According to our trainer, Archie is generally a sweet soul, suffering from a lack of trust. He is looking for guidance and wants to do the right thing. His body shows signs of negilect and probably as a result, he does have some food guarding issues that need to be understood. He can be very sensitive to physical touch and feels threatened if handled wrongly. However, Archie is currently learning to accept human touch as positive. He is also working on being respectful of his humans around food and learning to “leave it” when told. He is very good with other dogs and has wonderful dog skills.
Archie is a classic case of a dog that needs empathy from his humans, and someone who can provide rock solid guidance and goals. The rewards will be great; he is an awesome dog with a gentle soul suffering from a lack of trust of people. In return for guidance, he will be a great companion.
No children for this boy and a fenced yard is important for him to play as he is active. He needs a confident person who can give him the time to continue his growth.
Since he is currently with our trainer, several visits will need to be scheduled prior to adoption – consideration to location is important. He is currently in Clinton, CT. and his fee is $450.00
Winston is a neutered, 20 mth old, 28lb full of life, high energy Boston with a love of chasing balls. He listens well and loves to follow direction; his trainer thinks he would also love a sport such as agility. Because Winston can get over excited when people first enter the house and has nipped in that situation, a home without children is recommended, even though he enjoys the company of calm children. Winston is affectionate and loving but not suited to someone who cannot fulfill his exercise requirements. If you love to walk, hike or play lots of outdoor games with a dog then Winston could be your guy!

Bubba is 3 years old and has a very loving personality. He is full of nervous energy and easily excited so an adult only home with lots of exercise, play and fun would suit him, though also one that can be calm and not too hectic. Bubba became very possessive of his owner in his previous home and he has been working on this with his trainer. His adopters would need to continue to keep him from wanting to own just one person. Since being with his trainer, Bubba has shown that with some guidance he can play nicely with other dogs and people. He is a super sweet, affectionate guy who thrives on routine and direction. Bubba is available to child free adopters only.
